2013 Jayco Premier 351RLTs heading back to factory

Continuing problem with sewer smell inside of camper being dealt with at factory. Problem has been documented by the dealership. Dropped unit off today , being picked up by Transport Oct 14th and is scheduled for service at the Factory on the 28th. We are hoping its a fast turnaround as we are heading South December 27and have to repack the entire unit. Will keep updated on what they find and the solution they came up with,

We have been dealing with the same problem. We bought a 2012 365 BHS in May 2012 and brought it to our seasonal site. My wife and I kept commenting on the sewage smell when you first walk into the camper. Then the smell was coming from the cabinets in the upstairs bathroom and under the kitchen sink. We originally thought it to be the stubby vents in each cabinet. But a few months later while dumping I saw a large amount of water leaking from the underbelly. Contacted the dealership and they responded right to the campsite. They found that one of my tanks had split alongside the factory weld. I brought it to the dealership and they removed the underbelly and all insulation and replaced the tank. They showed me the broken tank when the job was finished. The dealership tried to fix the squeaky floor while tank was out. Picked it up this year in May and brought it back to the campground. The camper still has a sewage odor. They dealership came back up and checked the roof vents and found them to be unblocked and functional. Please let me know what you find out. Our camper is going back to dealership to fix some cabinet doors, squeaky floor and unpleasant sewage odor.

I thought I had black tank odor about a month ago and I couldn't seem to stop it. After giving up on the black tank, I put a load of chemical in the kitchen gray tank. Odor gone! Even with regular dumping the gray tank needs something added to it occasionally. I full time and this is the first time in over 3 years with this problem.

Edatlanta-- We tried chemical, checked the roof vents, replaced the air admittance valves under the sinks with no luck. Tried the tornado vent- no luck. Brought the trailer to the dealer who checked everything out and could not find the problem. The dealership documented that there was a problem. P traps and all plumbing runs have been checked no luck there neither. Dealership checked everything that they could ,short of ripping out the tanks. Unit is scheduled to be worked on Oct 28th at the Factory. Hope they find the problem.
